It's not even so much the hours that is the bad part, it's the frantic pace at which we have had to work. It really doesn't come as a surprise to me, as everything in the commercial world is a rush, but this last couple of weeks has been insane.
On a side note, during this frantic 2 weeks, things slowed down for a few hours on sunday so I had a small window of time to drop by the Motor City Comic Con. The actual con was kinda lame, but I got to meet and have a real nice discussion with artist David Finch. He was super cool and extremely nice and helpful. Meeting him was a breath of fresh air during the shitstorm that was coming down all around me at work. It was awesome! He is an amazing artist.
Anyways, I just wrapped up my last board for this project (knock on wood) and I am completely tired. I need sleep. Since I can't show anything cool or recent, here's some old stuff! Weeeee!
I did the wizard art for Alltel a while back. It's been in a ton of commercials and they even took the wizard I designed and turned him into a live action character in the spots. That's kinda cool I guess. I feel bad for the poor chap who has to wear that getup! I did it in Photoshop and Painter and they just added it to the van in post.
Here is a cover I did for Detroiter magazine. I designed the three characters and rendered them a la Cheeks. Thanks Cheeks.
